When Dennis isn’t working, you can find him in the gym. He is a runner and participates in many 5K, 10K and triathalons each year.
When asked what he likes best about living in the Memphis area, Dennis says “It’s big enough to have all the good things you’d hope to find in a GREAT place to live…plus you can still drive across town in less than an hour!”
